  1. Best answer
    For a system using a single Radeon HD 6850 graphics card AMD specifies a minimum of a 500 Watt or greater power supply. The power supply should also have a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 30 Amps or greater and have at least one 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connector.

    Total Power Supply Wattage is NOT the crucial factor in power supply selection!!! Total Continuous Amperage Available on the +12V Rail(s) is the most important factor.

    The Corsair Gaming Series GS700 (CMPSU-700G), with its combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 56 Amps and with two (6+2)-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors, is more than sufficient to power your system configuration with a single Radeon HD 6850.

    I think a Corsair Gaming Series GS500 (CP-9020005-XX), with its combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 39 Amps and with two (6+2)-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors, is quite sufficient and $30 cheaper.

    The Intel Desktop Board DH61WW has one PCI Express 2.0 x 16 bus add-in card connector so it will support a Radeon HD 6850 just fine.

  3. Yes, the Corsair GS700 is more than enough. Even a 500W is enough for the 6850 but it is good to provide for ample capacity for the future. So yeah... go for the GS700.
    And yes again, your motherboard dh61ww will support a single 6850.
